"Slow Motion" is a 2004 U.S. number-one hit single by rapper Juvenile featuring the late Soulja Slim. The song is an original production by Danny Kartel. It held the number one position on the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks from August 7 2004, and was the first number one for both Juvenile and Soulja Slim. Although it wasn't planned to be a tribute song it came out as one of the famous posthumous songs, because of Soulja's sudden death in November, a year before the recording process was released. (though the beat and lyrics were already done before by Soulja). In the video everyone wears black T-shirts with a "R.I.P. Soulja Slim" white text on the front and back. There are also people holding "Thou shall not kill" paperboard signs.

The song made Soulja Slim the sixth artist to have a posthumous #1 on "Billboard"'s Hot 100, and the only artist since then was Static Major, featured on Lil Wayne's "Lollipop."

The "slow motion" of the title is a woman's movement: "Slow motion for me, slow motion for me, move it slow motion for me / Uh I like it like that she working that back I don't know how to act...".

Originally affiliated with the Cash Money roster, as a result of the huge success of the single (allow for being released by an independent label) Juvenile was signed to Atlantic Records shortly after peaking the Billboard chart. The song was produced by "Cash Money" but with the new deal a complementary contract was also signed allowing Juvenile to bring his newly formed "UTP (Up Town Period)" label to Atlantic. The production on the album with the Williams duo was considered a one-time collaboration from then on.
